Pros

Great people committed to their work. A fun, family-friendly work culture and environment. Excellent benefits and comp time policy. Casual dress code. All the perks of working for a natural resource, recreation and outdoors focused organization.

Cons

As is common with government, bureaucracy can be a huge challenge. Funding is determined by the legislature and lower than most state agencies. This impacts salary and opportunities for growth.

Advice to Management

Streamline mandated business polices and procedures. Listen to and empower the field and in working together with headquarters. Find ways to better generate revenue and self-fund programs and activities.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, pay is good and the work is fun. Meet lots of different people.

    Cons

    Would have loved more hours to get benefits. Also they deduct Retire $$ out of PT employees pay checks, PT employees don't make a whole lot of money and should only pay into a retirement if they become FT employees.
